Terrible, absolutely terrible. A blatant Chrysler ripoff with a facade that belongs in a suburban office park. This is an insult to skyscrapers.

Sorry but no. In principle I have no problem with the Chrysler inspiration, but the whole skeletal crown thing is really looking terrible. Facade is ugly too. It retains the overall Chrysler silhouette seen from a distance, which is good, but again it's kind of ruined by the fact it's only a frame.
4/10.
